One vital thing to note about wrinkles is that they can come in several different forms. The two most common types of age-related wrinkles, however, are called dynamic and static wrinkles. Dynamic wrinkles are creases that you can easily see each time the face is in motion. They are directly tied to movement and tension that occurs in the expressive muscles.
Whenever you smile or frown, dynamic wrinkles like frown lines and crow’s feet are going to be most apparent. Once your facial muscles relax, however, these issues are going to naturally abate. That’s why these are among the very first signs of aging that you’re likely to notice. They are also very easy to correct.
When addressing dynamic wrinkling, your provider will inject a small amount of a purified neurotoxin into the targeted facial areas. This will relax the expressive muscles for a measured period of time so that surface wrinkles are effectively smoothed out. Sadly, these injections only last for several months. This makes it necessary for patients to have their procedures repeated one to two times each year for extended benefits.
When they are done properly, these injections can create a much younger-looking visage and without necessarily affecting your ability to make a diverse range of facial expressions. This is why the best providers only use a very small amount of these solutions. Too much can give the face a very unnatural look and may impede your ability to make a variety of emotive expressions.
Volume loss can create a much more severe form of facial wrinkling known as static wrinkling. As a person ages, there is a slow break down in the structure of the dermis. At the foundation layer of the dermis, you will find HA or hyaluronic acid that provides support and keeps the visage filled out. Once dermal fillers have been injected, however, more of this acid will be present.
The acid within these injections also attracts water molecules and retains them. This causes the skin in the target area to plump up so that creases along your nasolabial folds and in other areas will be filled in. Moreover, there is no need for your provider to make incisions when performing these treatments. There’s also no removal or alteration of facial tissues required and no downtime for patients to worry about.
If you suffer from both static and dynamic wrinkling, it may be possible to correct both of these issues at once with injectable fillers and neurotoxins. Products like these work seamlessly to create a youthful visage. They are much better than face lift treatments and they tend to cost a whole lot less as well.
